Prepare Black Beans: 1 cup cooked

  • Black beans or black turtle beans rinsed and soaked overnight, rinse again and add water to cover beans by two inches.
  • Cook until tender. Rinse again.

Prepare Sweet Potatoes: 2 cups mashed

  • Soak in water and baking soda to clean. Rinse with hands under water to remove excess dirt.
  • Cut in half longways. Place with the inside face down on a greased cookie sheet.
  • Bake @350 for 25-40 minutes.
  • Remove when skin can be pierced with a fork easily. I often will have to take some off the baking sheet sooner than others.
  • Scoop baked sweet potato out of the skin.

Prepare Rice: 1 cup cooked

  • Preheat oven to 375-400 Degrees.
  • In a bowl half mash beans for texture.
  • Add sweet potatoes and mash together.
  • Add rice, onion, garlic and turmeric and mix.
  • Add seasoning, nut meal or flour, little bits at a time.
  • Add more rice or quinoa, nut meal or flour if mixture is too wet.
  • It should be moist but moldable.
  • Using your half measure cup scoop mixture on to parchment lined baking sheet.
  • You may have to use a large serving spoon if the mixture is wet and sticking to measuring cup.
  • Press down on mixture to make a patty. 3.5- 4 inches in diameter and 1/3-1/2 inch thick.
  • Bake for 20 minutes until bottoms are golden brown then flip.
  • Bake another 15-20 minutes until both sides are golden.
  • If patties are mushy on the inside lower the heat and flip again.
  • You may want to start with your oven at 375 degrees and flip more than once adding a few minutes at a time until desired texture is reached.
  • Place on a gluten free, diary free bun of choice or a bed of lettuce and add your favorite toppings
